Electronic Art Workshop

Wednesday July 13, 2011

We had great fun this past Saturday hosting a free Electronic Arts Workshop as part of our DownStreet Art exhibition, Everything Must Go! by Ephraim and Sadie Hatfield.

The workshop began with a brief overview of electronic art, followed by projects working with simple circuits. Participants brought small objects to motorize and even soldered their own works!

Many thanks to MCLA Gallery 51 for letting us use their wonderful space.

We will be doing a second workshop on Tuesday, August 9th, from 6-8 pm. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to info@greylockarts.net.

Articulated Opening Reception

Sunday November 21, 2010





Larry Alice has always been one of Greylock Arts greatest supporters. He was a huge help with Lumens, he has never not let us borrow his projector, and while he hasn’t taken credit for it, we think he un-clogged our utility room sink. All of this plus his prior show, Mental Problems, at the Eclipse Mill Gallery, we still think of as one of the best exhibits we’ve seen since moving to in the Berkshires. And so it is with extreme pleasure that we show Larry’s latest body of work, Articulated, at Greylock Arts. Video from the opening can be seen above. Thanks to everyone who came out in support of Larry!

Richard Harrington's Polyhedra Series: Three Stellated Icosahedral Sieves

Thursday July 15, 2010

Greylock Arts is pleased to announce that Richard Harrington’s Polyhedra Series: Three Stellated Icosahedral Sieves are on view in our windows throughout the month of July. Our windows are visible from the street 24/7, though we highly recommend seeing the works in the late afternoon / sunset — the shadows they cast are exquisite.

Art & Technology Talk at Bascom Lodge

Tuesday July 13, 2010

Thanks to Peter Dudek for bringing us up to the Bascom Lodge for an art and technology talk Monday night. We discussed the technology behind the upcoming Ephraim & Sadie Hatfield installation Not For Sale. The project makes use of the Arduino micro-controller platform as well as the open source telephony project Asterisk. And since it was the eve of our third birthday, we also took it as an opportunity to recap our many accomplishments as Greylock Arts. It has been a fantastic three years! We felt so fortunate to celebrate our birthday in this way, with so many of our friends, and on the summit of our namesake, Mount Greylock.

Not For Sale Previewed at DownStreet Art

Saturday June 26, 2010

Pictured above, Marianne previews Ephraim & Sadie Hatfield‘s Not For Sale at the DownStreet Art kickoff event Thursday night in North Adams. After some intense rains earlier that afternoon the sky cleared up, the hot summer air cooled down, and people from across Western Massachusetts and Southern Vermont came out for the now annual arts festival. DSA is spearheaded by Jonathan Secor and the great folks at the Berkshire Cultural Resource Center. Greylock Arts participated in the inaugural DSA back in 2008 with Lumens, and after taking a year off, we’re back at it in 2010 as we produce the Hatfield’s upcoming interactive storefront window installation. Unfortunately Ephraim & Sadie could not attend. But it was great to see people react to their simple demonstration. And we look forward to seeing all of what Ephraim & Sadie have in store for us when Not For Sale officially opens next month. Follow the Hatfield’s on Twitter, Like them on Facebook, or read their blog as they prepare for the July 29th opening.

Howard Cruse In New York

Saturday June 19, 2010

Marianne and I had the extreme pleasure of seeing dear friend Howard Cruse give a slideshow Thursday evening at Bluestockings in New York. Howard, along with fellow comics artists Jennifer Camper and Ivan Velez Jr., presented their work to a packed house. Howard read from his award-winning semi-autobiographical graphic novel Stuck Rubber Baby. A 15th anniversary edition of Stuck Rubber Baby, available on Amazon, was released by DC Vertigo earlier this month. Howard is a truly amazing artist and storyteller, and one of our favorite people!
